Are you new to studying law? You've decided to study one of the most fascinating and intellectually stimulating subjects - law. Whether you're working towards a law degree or studying law as part of another subject, Introduction to the English Legal System is your ideal starting point.

Right from the word go, Martin Partington enlivens and clarifies the legal system, and explains the central role it plays in society. Do you want to think critically about the world in which you live? What is the purpose of law? Whose interests does the law favour?

Consolidating over 40 years' experience in the law, Martin Partington will challenge your assumptions about the English legal system, and encourage you to question how far it meets the demands placed upon it. Are you aware of contemporary debates on the legal system?

Annually updated, Introduction to the English Legal System discusses all the latest debates and issues that will affect you during your studies and looking ahead to your career. Interview podcasts, discussion questions and more can be found on the accompanying author blog and Online Resource Centre.
